This question is somewhat related to
where we discussed such wonderful "features" of C like
Now, I encountered another good one (amazing what
you find when combing through old code)
// K & R format. You'd never know it, but this
// function actually takes two parameters.
now later on, this function is passed to another function
that expects a function pointer...
Now, foo expects that the function passed into it
takes a long, a short, and a char*. So, will C
then use that info to "create" an implicit prototype,
much like it might if I called the function
g, myshort, mycharpointer);
PS-Sorry for the odd# of points, it's all I have left :)
